Each year volunteers for Abby’s Closet give away thousands of brand new or gently used prom dresses to young women who would otherwise not be able to purchase their own dress.
This year’s annual prom giveaway will take place April 5-6, 2014 at the Oregon Convention Center. Any high school girl is eligible to receive a dress. School ID is required. If you are homeschooled, you can email them and explain your situation: firstname.lastname@example.org. More FAQs on their website.
100s of volunteers are needed for the event. Anyone can help with set-up and tear down, only women 18 and up are allowed to help out with the dress fittings and distribution.
